Hospitals

Jewish Communal Organizations

JARC (Jewish Association For Residential Care): The Jewish Hospice & Chaplaincy Network provides all end of life pastoral care to residents of JARC. The needs of these residents with developmental disabilities are often overlooked or misunderstood when facing terminal illness or end-of-life issues of a loved one.

Jewish Family Service (JFS): Jewish Family Service and the Jewish Hospice and Chaplaincy Network have collaborated to create two unique programs to assist in the care of the terminally ill; a volunteer training program and Lifelinks. Lifelinks is a central reference and referral service for health care and social service providers as well as consumers dealing with terminal illness. It is a “Lifeline” linking Jewish patients and families to “what they need, when they need it.” In addition to these programs, Jewish Family Service provides office space for Jewish Hospice and Chaplaincy Network, basic technical support, and a broad diversity of social service to patients and families. (See section on LifeLinks Program for additional information).
